I just started tinkering with Chameleon, and it is really great!  I had a few questions I was hoping users could help me with.  I am trying to set up a controller for my Novation Circuit - here are the MIDI CCs:  https://d2xhy469pqj8rc.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/novation/downloads/12118/circuit-programmers-reference-guide-v1-0.pdf.

I would like to add some knobs, for example, to control a CC range from 0 –127 (-64 –63), with a default value of 64 (0).  How would I set this knob up in Chameleon?  Similarly, there are some knobs that only have a CC range from 0 - 5 (for example, filter type), with a default value of 1, or a CC range of 0 - 29 (in my case, OSC wave type).  How would I set these knobs up in Chameleon - in other words, knobs with a range of 0 to less than 127?  If someone could please send me screen shots of these knob setups, I would really appreciate it!

Finally, does Chameleon recognize the current CC values from hardware or software it is connected to?  For example, if I load a preset on my Novation Circuit, will the CC values of the filter cutoff, frequency, ADSR envelope, etc. automatically be reflected in the respective Chameleon knobs for those CCs?

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Right now there is no way to setup knobs on chameleon to send specific range.
Anyway I already start to work in this feature, I think have this ready for the next version and you can setup start and end value, in that way you can setup any range.

If your device send midi out of that values on same channel, yes, the knobs should react to that value.

Extra comment, for select 3 or 4 values,  4 little buttons as radio buttons work better than a nob, at least in a touchscreen.
I suggest use radio buttons, instead use a touch knob not provide any kind of tactile feedback related to the rotation etc.
Polyphony Mode range is 0 to 3, and really not have sense use a knob for that, ou cna create 3 buttons and group as a radio button.

For a osc1 range is  0 – 29, in this case you need wait for the range option coming in the next update, anyway you can start construct your templates, and when next version arrive just edit and change the ranges.
Anyway is not crazy use buttons grouped in radio button behaviour when is possible, you have a direct access to exactly what you need an want, of course will be problematic on large ranges.
